Quantity:

The Archaeology of Fatehpur Sikri-New Discoveries is a fundamental research work on medieval archaeology.  It contains results of excavations at Birchhabili-Tila and exploration of the region within a radius of 25 km.  Besides this, chronological study of the monuments have been made phase-wise along with inscriptions and mason marks.  The site of Ibadat-Khanah which Akbar founded for religious and philosophical discussions has been identified with fair amount of certainty. 

The Agni-Kunda of so-called Jodha Bai's Palace, Hiran-Minar, and other monuments have been discussed with new interpretations according to contemporary historical records.  This strikingly illustrated volume is the result of first hand research work and deals with many aspects afresh right from prehistory to the present time.  Illuminating, in place provocative, this book should instigate further discussion and debate about one of the most dynamic and exiting periods in medieval Indian history.  Written lucidly and yet with strong supportive historical evidence, the book is valuable for a general interest reader as well as a historian/archaeologist.
